Providing Outstanding Representation And Peace Of Mind

If you or your child suffered catastrophic injuries from an infection during pregnancy, you might have a medical malpractice case. In most cases, adequate monitoring of the mother and child during pregnancy and competent delivery would be sufficient to prevent pregnancy-related infections. We can help you obtain compensation for the injuries you or your child has endured on account of your doctor’s lack of due diligence.

You could be entitled to substantial financial compensation if we can establish that your doctor’s negligence was directly responsible for the tragedy you suffered. Our lawyers have more than 100 combined years of experience investigating the facts surrounding birth injuries to determine liability. At McKeen & Associates, P.C., we will help you.

A Track Record Of Success

We provide our clients the peace of mind of knowing that their issues are in good hands. In more than 30 years as a law firm, McKeen & Associates, P.C., has developed an impressive track record of successful verdicts and settlements in Michigan, Illinois and across the country. Medical malpractice is a difficult type of litigation. We have the experience and skill to get you the maximum financial award.

  • Sepsis: This is a blood infection a baby contracts during pregnancy, labor or birth. Often the warning signs are not apparent until the infection is advanced and the child is already close to death.
  • Group B strep: The mother is the carrier of Group B strep, which exists in the vaginal flora of a large percentage of women. Every pregnant woman must be tested for this.

Group B and sepsis can be contracted by the child during pregnancy or delivery or shortly after birth. Prenatal and perinatal infections must be treated quickly and aggressively. Mothers who test positive and do not receive antibiotics almost certainly pass on the infection to the child, possibly leading to cerebral palsy or other forms of brain damage and, in the most serious cases, wrongful death.

We will represent your interests aggressively and compassionately. The financial compensation you receive will be your means of moving forward to live as normal a life as possible, so we will fight to get the maximum compensation available for your case.
